Sorry it’s been a lil’ over a week again since my last post – but we’ve been busy having summer adventures!
In our 1room school house and across Michigan we’ve been learning about summer adventures…
and transportation by playing out and researching transportation timelines.
We roll-played animal travel and how nature celebrates the summer season.
We roll-played family summer traditions and planned how to celebrate summer holidays.
We created festive foods for the 4th of July!
Red-white-&blue fruits are always a seasonal favorite around here!
We enjoyed cookouts and lots of outside fun.
Daycare friends loved bubble breaks during recess.
Tutor time students loved water play activities during the hot days.
During one of the hottest days we braved the heat to explore Greenfield Village.
Mi Families was able to secure homeschool discounts for this amazing fieldtrip!
All year round Mi Families programs host field trips and events for families!
The special day at Henry Ford lined up perfectly with our transportation lessons …
and made a smoooooooth transition into our US history lessons!
Learning about American History helped us prepare for our 4th of July activities.
Tots to teens researched American history and how it’s impacting current news.
Students researched old speeches, documents and symbols.
Mi Families participants watched documentaries and listened to patriotic music all week long.
Students made reports about topics they wanted to learn more about.
From learning about our founding fathers to those who first discovered America…
Students were eager to share what they learned and dive further into history lessons.
Students will continue to learn about American history, national monuments… national parks…
As we learn more about our nation we’ll be learning how we show our country and citizens respect.
Respect for other and responsibility for ourselves is a year round character focus in our programs.
Although some programs are simply a daily themed focus, we offer activities year round for all ages!
Our youngest participants love our Mother Goose Time activities.
Mother Goose Time is a preschool curriculum with a monthly topic.
The curriculum includes an extra day of lesson plans for seasonal topics, such as the 4th of July!
Little learners love being introduced to new topics through hands on activities.
Older students love expanding on daily topics and help plan future days activities…
Next week we still have a couple part time openings in our mini-camps as we continue learning about summer adventures for people – and for animals. Animal topics will help transition us into future NATURE DETECTIVE lessons from Mother Goose Time as we expand on our national parks / respect and responsibility lessons. Mi Families uses an “adventure academy” curriculum for all ages encouraging education through recreation.
